I returned a few days ago from a long-term stay in the penthouse suite of Abbeymoore Manor. There simply are no finer hosts than Ian and Anne and I have never had a more relaxing sojourn than that which I enjoyed at Abbeymoore. Combining just the right blend of comfort, humor, fine cooking, never-fail recommendations, and a great location, this rightly deserves its #1 ranking for b&b’s in Victoria and indeed beyond.
During my forays through the public areas, I never encountered a guest who didn’t seem to be smiling and relaxed, even those who were just staying one or two nights. And if you are lucky like me and enjoy an extended stay, you may soon find yourself feeling like family.
As for the penthouse suite - it is exquisite, nicely furnished, fully equipped, very private, and has a bedroom to die for (well, not literally). The queen-sized bed sits in a wonderful crow’s nest-type nook with windows on three sides and nice views of the water. It is an incredible place to have to wake up every morning.
Bottom line: Nice places abound in Victoria, but there are none better than Abbeymoore. Thanks to Ian and Anne, Rita and Michelle (who thoughtfully and thoroughly clean the rooms) for a spectacular, restful time. And give me a call anytime you want me to be a guinea pig for another new breakfast entrée!
